SOS: Perfect one-piece please

Clothes

SOS ALERT!

We were contacted by Simone on our Facebook page asking if we could find her the perfect one piece swimsuit. She’s after something in a dark colour palette with a V neck, low back and straps so she can actually swim in it, not just lay around looking gorgeous – although we’ll assume she needs to do that too.

It can be really tough finding a swimsuit that’s both practical (read: doesn’t fall off, fall apart or flash your bits when you dive in the water) and fashionable (read: flattering, age appropriate and confidence-building), especially as we’re moving into autumn/winter… but that doesn’t mean they’re not out there.

We’ve pulled together a collection of one-piece swimsuits we think will hit the mark. Just remember when buying swimwear online make sure you check the store’s return policies before purchasing, so you know where you stand if you have a change of heart, or the fit’s not right.

These are for you Simone, surf’s up!
